61 ??

8*8-64-3=61 assuming those pics represent chess "rooks"
#4
125 as there is also the larger square of the board, plus squares made of squares eg 2x2 3x3 4x4 etc

Edit: sorry explained that wrong as I was thinking of an example of just a plain chessboard I did on an enhanced thinking course. But my answer still stands.
#5
65 figures not representing rooks

I see what you mean - but the larger square of the board contains the rooks?

111 i reckon.
61 - 1x1's
1 big one
27 - 2x2's
17 - 3x3's
5 - 4x4's

in which case 111 - my big one = 110

Sorry for the delay! I had to retrace my steps through the site I got this from to check it again. The answer is indeed 125.
